Through the Partnership for West Baltimore, the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) and the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC) will recruit faculty, staff, and students interested in serving in both ongoing and one-time or limited-duration volunteer opportunities to be matched with the service needs of our West Baltimore partners. Ongoing volunteer opportunities supported through this effort will include literacy initiatives such as Reading Partners, mentoring opportunities via UMB CURE Scholars. One-time opportunities could include judging science fair competitions, career exposure and presentation opportunities for employees to present at local schools, community gardening projects, and other fun and educational activities. Volunteer opportunities will be uploaded by our West Baltimore partners to UMB’s volunteer website where campus stakeholders can find opportunities that match their interests.
We will continue to update this volunteering section, so please visit the site periodically to view the latest updates. In the meantime, visit the UMB Office of Community Engagement website to view the current list of opportunities.
